VOTING IN WAKEFIELD, ELECTIONS 
AND POLITICAL ORGANIZATIONS 

Prepared by the League of Women Voters 



To Be A Voter, A Person Must Be 

an American citizen (native-born or naturalized) 

18 years or more in age 

a resident of Massachusetts 

a resident of Wakefield 



To Register As A Voter, A Citizen Must 

appear in person before an authorized Registrar of Voters 

When and Where to Register: 

8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Monday through Friday in the Town Clerk's office. 
7:00 to 8:00 P.M. Tuesday evenings in the Town Clerk's office. 
Or at especially designated places in precincts, within two weeks of the 
closing of registration, scheduled by Board of Registrars and announced in 
the Wakefield Item. 

However no registration takes place between the 32nd day preceding and the 
day following the State and Presidential Primaries and the State Elections 
nor between the 20th day preceding and the day following the annual Town 
Election. 

Registration is permenent unless a voter moves to a new city or town or 
changes name by marriage. However, failure to respond to the Annual Census 
may result in being dropped from the list of Registered Voters, per Chapter 51 — 
Section 4. A voter, moving from one precinct to another within the town, should 
immediately notify the Registrars of the change to assure being able to vote in the 
new precinct, otherwise he must vote in his former address. 

Registrations are administered by the Board of Registrars. The Board is 
composed of three citizens, appointed for three year terms by the Board of 
Selectmen, and the Town Clerk, who by virtue of the office, serves as clerk of the 
board. 

Polling Places 

1. Precinct 1 — Americal Civic Center 

2. Precinct 2— Greenwood School 

3. Precinct 3— St. Joseph's Hall 

4 . Precinct 4 — Hurd School 

5. Precinct 5 — Franklin School 

Local elections are held annually on the first Monday in March to elect 
certain officials and members of boards for their respective terms. 

Local elections are non-partisan. Write-ins are permitted, and absentee 
voting is allowed in local elections. 



167th ANNUAL REPORT _ 9 



To Become a Candidate for Local Office A Citizen Must . . . 

be a registered voter 

secure nomination papers from the Town Clerk (one set of papers for each 

office to appear on the ballot) 
obtain signatures of 50 registered voters 
submit nomination papers with the Board of Registrars for certification 7 

days preceding the 35th day before the Town Election 
file with the Town Clerk by 5 P.M. on the 35th day before the Town election. 

(This places the candidate's name on the ballot officially, providing the 

papers are properly certified). 

The Town Clerk administers election. The Board of Selectmen annually in 
August appoints election officers to supervise voting at the polls. These include 
five wardens and five clerks. 

To Join a Political Party . . . 

A voter must declare his party choice as he enters the polls to vote in the 
primary elections. 

To Change or Cancel Party Enrollment . . . 

A voter may either appear in person or use the postal system to change his 
Party Designation. This may be done any time except when registration is closed, 
immediately preceding elections. 

A party member is eligible to be a delegate to his party conventions. 
Membership on the town Democratic and Republican Committees is determined 
by ballot every four years at the Presidential Primary. A non-party member is 
called an "Independent" voter, or an "un-enrolled" voter. 

The Annual Report of the Town Officers is published each year and is 
available at the time of Town Meeting and also at the public library. The report 
includes all financial data pertaining to the costs of town operating expenses. 

Procedure of Town Meeting . . . 

The Moderator, an elected town official, presides at town meetings. He 
begins to read the call for the meeting. Usually a motion is made to waive further 
reading of the warrant (with the exception of the constable's return which the 
law demands be read) and the motion is carried. Articles in the warrant are taken 
up in order as they are printed in the warrant unless it is requested by a two- 
thirds vote that they be taken up otherwise. 

The recommendations of the Finance Committee are given before voters 
discuss or act upon an article. For the annual town meeting, these 
recommendations are available a week to ten days before the meeting in booklet 
form, called "Annual Appropriations for 197-," and may be obtained at the 
Selectmen's Room at Town Hall. 

Following the Finance Committee's recommendations or the 
recommendations of such special department as may be permitted to make 
recommendations, the sponsor of the article is usually allowed to present his 
case. The voters may then debate the question according to rules of 
parliamentary procedure prescribed by the town's bylaws such as: 



10 TOWN OF WAKEFIELD 



Stand, address the Moderator, give name and address clearly, confine 
remarks to the question under debate and avoid personalities. 

-Speak for not more than 10 minutes at any one time, unless granted 
permission by the meeting. No voter may speak more than once on any 
question if other voters desire to be heard, and no voter may speak more than 
twice on the same question without permission of the meeting. 
— Speak not more than two minutes on any one of the following motions: 
Motion to adjourn 
Motion to lay on the table 
Motion to take from the table 
Motion to put the previous question 

(These motions only are in order when a question is under debate. 
Total time allowed for debate on each motion is six minutes). 

A two-thirds vote of the assembly is necessary on a motion which requires a 
bond issue. A vote may be reconsidered at the same session or at adjourned 
session upon two-thirds vote of the assembly. The Moderator may request a 
voter to put his motion in writing. Should seven voters doubt the accuracy of the 
Moderator's count of hands on a motion, tellers are appointed to make the count. 
The Moderator clarifies motions when they are especially complex. 

Conduct at the town meeting is further governed by the rules of practice, as 
they are pertinent to town meetings, in Cushings' Manual of Parliamentary 
Procedure. 

The Town Meeting Warrant and the Annual Report* 

The warrant is composed by the Selectmen, with articles being entered by 
request or petition. Individual voters may have an article inserted by petition. 
The Selectmen receive all petitions for the warrant, except those having to do 
with sidewalks, drainage, sewers and streets which must be submitted to the 
Board of Public Works. Signatures of ten or more registered voters are required 
on articles for annual town meetings; 100 signatures are required for articles filed 
by citizens in warrants for special town meetings. Signatures on petitions must 
be exactly as the voters' signatures appear on the voting list. Voters may 
request the advice of the Town Counsel in drawing up an article. Customarily, 
public announcement is made of the opening and the closing dates of the 
warrant. Citizens, however, may take their petitions to the Selectmen at any 
Board meeting during the year and the Selectmen will hold such articles for 
insertion in the warrant for the next town meeting. Department heads enter their 
articles by the process of request. 



♦Town Meeting Warrant — A collection of articles presented by departments, 
committees and voters for consideration by voters at an annual or a special town 
meeting.

Report of the Board of Selectmen 



EUGENE J. SULLIVAN, JR., Chairman 
ALFRED J. YEBBA, Secretary 
JOHN W. MOCCIA, JR. 
JOHN F. CARNEY 
THOMAS M. HOURIHAN 



At the Board's organizational meeting, following the annual town meeting in 
March, Eugene J. Sullivan, Jr. was elected Chairman and Alfred J. Yebba was 
elected Secretary. Other Board members are John W. Moccia, Jr., John F. 
Carney and Thomas M. Hourihan. Margaret M. Brady was re-appointed Clerk of 
the Board. 

The powers , duties and responsibilities of the Board of Selectmen continue to 
be broadly diversified in hundreds of sections of law applying directly to select- 
men together with the hundreds of other sections of law relative to all Town 
Departments. 

The Town continues to function under the Board of Selectmen-Executive 
Secretary plan of municipal administration . This plan maintains the selectmen in 
their traditional role as the elected directors of the municipality as it gives 
cognizance to the need for an administrator to carry out administration 
assignments within a policy framework established by the Board of Selectmen. 

The broadly diversified powers, duties and responsibilities of the Board of 
Selectmen affect the administration of all town departments and a central 
coordination is essential to an effective and efficient municipal administration. 

The Board of Selectmen and the Executive Secretary represent the Town's 
interest before governmental officials, committees and commissions at the 
various levels of government for the purpose of presenting information and 
evidence on matters which concern the Town of Wakefield. 

The necessity for effective liaison and representation between the Town, the 
Federal Government, the State Government and metropolitan agencies has 
become increasingly complex and demanding. The Town's active participation is 
necessary to the Town's responsible representation in an area of activity that 
involves significant dollar cost as well as a progressively increasing socio- 
economic impact. 

The Fire and Casualty Insurance program which extends to all municipal 
departments and provides for various types of required protection amounted to 
premium cost of $126,940. The Workmen's Compensation insurance program 
extends coverages to all insurable departments of the Town at a premium cost of 
$117,902. 

The Group Insurance program of medical-surgical hospitalization and life 
insurance benefits authorized for Town employees by referendum action in March 
1958 and extended to cover employees who retired after original acceptance of the 
legislation which provided group insurance benefits to Town employees (Chapter 



167th ANNUAL REPORT 13 



595, Acts 1959) continues to present the best features of any plan of protection for 
Town employees. There are presently 662 employees, 143 pensioners, and 152 
Optional Medicare members of the Town included in this program. The gross 
premium cost amounts to $972,696 of which amount the Town contributed 

$729,522. 

Chapter 763 of the Acts of the Year 1965 became effective on February 16, 
1966 which is legislative enactment of collective bargaining for municipalities. 
Municipal employers are prevented from (a) interfering with the right of em- 
ployees to organize for the purpose of collective bargaining, (b) dominating or 
interfering with any employee organization, (c) discharging or discriminating 
against any employee who testified before the State Labor Relations Commission 
on a certification proceeding, (d) refusing to bargain collectively in good faith 
with a designated exclusive bargaining agent, and (e) refusing to discuss 
grievances with the bargaining agent. The statute states "the municipal employer 
shall be represented by the Chief Executive Officer, whether elected or appointed 
or his designated representative or representatives." It has been determined that 
the Board of Selectmen is the Chief Executive Board in Towns for the purpose of 
this statute, except as to School Department personnel. This legislation continues 
a costly and complex impact on municipal administration in Massachusetts . The 
Board of Selectmen appointed Executive Secretary John J. McCarthy, Town 
Counsel Mario L. Simeola and Public Works Director Richard C. Boutiette as 
delegated representatives in collective bargaining procedure with the established 
Public Works unit. The Board of Selectmen appointed Executive Secretary John 
J. McCarthy, Town Counsel Mario L. Simeola and Fire Chief Walter V. Maloney 
as delegated representatives in collective bargaining procedure with the 
established Fire Department Union. The Board of Selectemn appointed Executive 
Secretary John J. McCarthy, Town Counsel Mario L. Simeola and Public Works 
Director Richard C. Boutiette as delegated representatives in collective 
bargaining procedure with the Clerical Workers Union Committee. The Board of 
Selectmen appointed Executive Secretary John J. McCarthy, Town Counsel 
Mario L. Simeola and Police Chief William R. Connors as delegated represen- 
tatives in collective bargaining procedure with the Police Association. Town 
Counsel was authorized to engage the services of Special Counsel on Labor 
Negotiation and Attorney Edward Schneider was so engaged. 

Chapter 1078 of the Acts of the year 1973 has identified municipal labor 
contract negotiations as a matter of serious fiscal consequence. The Board of 
Selectmen has long recognized the necessity for professional representation at the 
bargaining table and has, accordingly, engaged specialized legal services in this 
important relationship. The new law provides that collective bargaining 
agreements prevail over personnel bylaws, fire and police regulations and certain 
specified statutes whereas the reverse was previously the case. 

Police and firefighters have the right to final offer arbitration though the 
scope of arbitration for police excludes matters involving the appointment, 
promotion, assignment and transfer of personnel. This form of compulsory ar- 
bitration is relatively new in that it limits the arbitrator's choice to the last best 
offer of the employer and the last best offer of labor. Although this brief citation 
of some important features of the referenced legislation is not intended to be a 
complete summary, it may serve to identify the implications and complexity of 
labor contract relations as has developed in the public sector. 



14 TOWN OF WAKEFIELD 



The automation of the Town's business functions has continued as planned. 
All the Town's payrolls, the Town's warrants, vendor payments and water billing 
have been automated. Current systems programming for automation include gas 
and light billing, real estate tax billing and motor vehicle excise tax collection. 

Additional savings and increased efficiency is anticipated upon automation 
of these systems. 

The Board observed with regret the deaths of the following active and retired 
employees:

16 TOWN OF WAKEFIELD 



Report of the Town Plannifig Board 

The Town Planning Board's activities in 1978 included the amending of 
Section 9A, Flood Plain Districts, in the Town's Zoning Bylaws to conform with 
the elevations of the Flood Plain determined by H. U. D. This was Article 43 in 
the warrant for the 1978 Annual Town Meeting. 

In October the Rules and Regulations Governing the Subdivision of Land in 
Wakefield, Section V. were amended as required by H. U. D. to enable the Town 
to continue to participate in the National Flood Insurance program. 

Under the Acts of 1975, the Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 40 A was 
amended under the title of "The Zoning Act" Chapter 808, to become effective on 
June 30, 1978 and the adoption of same was automatic whether or not the towns 
or cities wished to accept its provisions. 

The special Town Meeting held on June 26 voted against the adoption of 
Chapter 808 and several amendments to the Town's Zoning Bylaws proposed by 
the Planning Board. 

During the year several new subdivisions and the extension of others were 
approved. These were Mansion Hill Estates (23 lots) off Jordan Avenue, Man- 
sfield Drive Extension and Sesame Street (19 lots) easterly of Vernon Street and 
northerly of Lowell Street, Rosemary Avenue Extension (22 lots), Roosevelt 
Road Extension and Orsini Drive (6 lots) — a total of 70 new house lots. 

No subdivisions were completed in 1978. 

On December 13, 1977 representatives of the Institutional Investors Trust, 
owners of the Pleasure Island land zoned for High Rise Apartments, appeared to 
present plans for the development of the tract to be called "Colonial Point". The 
required site plan for the development was filed and building permits issued 
within the time allowed. 

As of December 29, 1978, no appreciable work has been done on the site. 

The Board held 39 meetings and eight public hearings in 1978. 

The Board was represented at the May meeting of the Massachusetts 
Federation of Planning Boards by J. T. French and by Mr. French and Harry J. 
Petrucci at the Fall Meeting. 

Mark M. Curley was elected to the Board in the 1978 Town election. 

M. T. Collins was re-appointed Consulting Engineer and Ruth A. Woodbury 
re -appointed Clerk -Treasurer.

Report of 
Wakefield Housing Authority 

As required by Section 26-U of the Housing Authority Laws [Chapter 121 of 
the General Laws], a copy of this Annual Report is sent to the State Housing 
Board, to the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Wakefield and the State 
Auditor. 

In the past year the Wakefield Housing Authority has worked diligently to 
expand the range of its services by taking the necessary preliminary steps toward 
construction of a forty unit dwelling for the elderly, winning state funds for a 
novel congregate housing facility for the "frail elderly", and maintaining and 
improving its existing services for the needy elderly in Wakefield. 



167th ANNUAL REPORT 39 



At the opening of the year, the Housing Authority's plans for a new forty 
unit facility had materialized only to the extent of a commitment from the federal 
government to pay for the project and a zoning variance from Town Meeting to 
permit construction at the corner of Foundry Street and Broadway. In February, 
test borings confirmed the feasibility of the site and surveyors began mapping its 
contours. The Authority advertised widely for a developer and received ten 
proposals. Using a point system whose criteria had been explained to all com- 
peting planners, the Board unanimously chose Quannapowitt Development 
Company of Wakefield. The federal government's Department of Housing and 
Urban Development enthusiastically approved the selection. From a pool of 
applicants, the Authority chose Design Plus, Inc. of North Reading as the in- 
specting architectural firm. At the close of the year, all the preliminary work had 
been done and the Authority looked forward to the start of construction in early 
Spring. 

Similar progress has been made on an exciting new concept in care for the 
aged: congregate housing for old people who need a high degree of attention but 
who remain too independent for life in a nursing home. The State's Department of 
Community Affairs (DC A) notified the Authority in January that money would 
be available for a few pioneer projects. After researching the idea, the Authority 
applied for DC A money and enlisted the support of the Town's governing boards. 
Largely because of the interest these boards expressed through their letters to 
DC A, Wakefield won a grant of $400,000.00 in August to construct a new 
building or renovate an old one for congregate housing. In September, the 
Chairman, Treasurer and Director of the Authority attended a meeting of the 
Citizens' Committee of 40 to ask that, if the Lincoln School were to be closed, the 
building be used for this purpose. As of this writing, there has been no firm 
decision on the fate of the Lincoln School. Whether the congregate housing 
facility is a new or renovated structure, the Town's interests will be well served by 
the architects selected by the Authority in November, Gelardin/Bruner/Cott, 
Inc. of Cambridge. 

The past year brought a number of challenges and improvements in the day- 
to-day conduct of the Authority's business. February's blizzard caused hardship 
for all, but could have had tragic results for the elderly residents of Hart's Hill, 
were it not for the generous efforts of the Authority's maintenance men, the Boy 
Scouts, Red Cross, Department of Public Works, and Wakefield's Police and Fire 
Departments. The buildings at Hart's Hill got some much-needed heating, 
roofing and electrical improvements, thanks to a State grant of several thousand 
dollars for modernization. In accordance with DC A regulations, the Authority 
formed a grievance panel to represent its tenants. And Wakefield won ten ad- 
ditional rent subsidy vouchers from the federal government, to be used by low- 
income people to rent housing anywhere in town. That increase brought the total 
number of such federally -funded vouchers to sixty -two; the Authority also ad- 
ministers twenty -two state -funded vouchers and oversees one hundred sixteen 
units of housing for the elderly at Hart's Hill.

Report of Youth Activities Commission 

The year of 1978 was a busy year at the Youth Center. The regular hours on 
weekends were: Fri., 7-11 P.M.; Sat., 2-5, 7-11 P.M., and Sun., 2-5 P.M. There 
were also many other activities for the young people to participate in. 

The young people assisted the Red Cross Disaster Fund by conducting a teen 
age dance sponsored by the Red Cross and raised $198. Also, the local chapter 
was assisted in some house cleaning at their office. Assistance was also given to 
the Senior Citizens in setting up for their picnic and the Friend's of the Library 
were assisted at their book sale. 

Only one paper drive was conducted in April of 78 as the market deteriorated, 
it was not worth the effort. Hopefully, 79 will be a better year. The Annual Easter 
Egg Hunt on the Common for the small fry was well received. A bus trip to the 
Red Sox game, music fests and periodic movies shown by the staff of the library 
rounded out a variety of programs for 1978. 

The balance in the Friend's of the Youth Center account as reported by Ann 
Kuklinski, treasurer, as of Nov. 30, 1978 was $314. This money is raised by paper 
drives, tonic machine and other fund raising projects. A Community Flea Market 
is in the planning stages for 1979. 

The Youth Activities Commission members for 1978 were: Chairman, Wm. 
Boodry, Rec. Sec. Cheryl Hubbard, Edward Hennesey, Lawrence Frotten, 
Patricia Boghos, Richard DeFeo and Donald McAuliffe. After many years on the 
commission Martin Moore resigned due to business. The staff was: Director 
James Scott, Bill Berrgren, Mark Donovan, Chris Gargano and Bill Kenney. 

Appropriation for 1978 $9,975.00 

Money spent of appropriation 8,297.00 

Receipts (vending) 808.49

Report of the Conservation Committee 

The Conservation Committee is authorized seven members appointed by the 
Board of Selectmen on an annual basis. At present the committee consists of five 
active members following the resignations of Messrs. Carl Gedult von Jungenfeld 
and Frank Coolidge. The five members offer a diversified degree of expertise 
involved in hydraulic and sanitary engineering, real estate, insurance and 
government. 

During the 1978 calendar year, the Conservation Committee provided 

technical assistance to the Board of Selectmen in a number of areas associated 

with the protection of wetlands within the Town. The Committee presented 

reports and recommendations at the following Wetland Protection Act Hearings: 

1. Notice of Intent to fill land on the former Pleasure Island site, immediately 

north of Audubon Road. 



167th ANNUAL REPORT 41 



2. Notice of Intent to fill lots 6, 7, 8, and 9 Rosemary Avenue extension. 

3. Notice of Intent to fill lots on Mansfield Drive extension and Sesame Street. 

Under previous Hatch Act permits, fillings was monitored and the necessary 
corrective action brought to the attention of the Department of Public Works and 
Building Inspector for the following locations: 

1. Fotino-Realty Trust, New Salem Street 

2. Thomas McManus, North Avenue 

The Committee conducted several field trips in Town -owned wetland areas to 
investigate the current land use patterns, general condition of these open spaces 
and to familiarize ourselves with the Town's water resources so that this valuable 
natural resource can be protected . A number of maintenance problems were noted 
and reported to the Board of Selectmen and the Department of Public Works. The 
majority of these maintenance problems have been corrected by the use of Ceta 
personnel. 

During the period 19 January through 7 February three intense storm 
systems passed through the Wakefield area. The first event on 19 and 20 January 
deposited about 24" of snow, the second event on 26 and 27 January dropped 2" 
of rain, while the last storm on 6 and 7 February left 30" of new snow. As a result 
of these storms , the water equivalence in the snow pack of the Saugus River was 
about 6 inches . This was as much as 5 to 6 times greater than the average water 
equivalence for that time of year. The Conservation Committee stated that this 
condition posed a potential flood threat to persons living along the Saugus and 
Mill Rivers and recommended that immediate corrective action be taken by town 
forces to alleviate the flood potential. 

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Flood Insurance 
Report prepared by Camp, Dresser & McKee, Inc. was reviewed by the Com- 
mittee during 1978 and a report submitted to the Board of Selectmen. The 
committee continued to coordinate between town and HUD officials on the 
minimum requirements necessary for acceptance in the "Regular" program of the 
Federal Flood Insurance Program. The Committee acted as liaison between HUD 
and the following town authorities requiring administrative changes to meet the 
requirements for flood insurance: 

1. Board of Selectmen 

2. Town Counsel 

3. Planning Board 

4. Department of Public Works 

We also prepared a draft copy of Section 9A. Flood Plain Districts of the 
Zoning Bylaws to be sponsored by the Board of Selectmen at the 1979 Annual 
Town Meeting. 

Several members of the committee were involved in public presentations in 
the Town as guest lecturers in connection with a course on community resources 
offered to elementary schools. The Conservation Committee was also represented 
at the Wakefield High School "Career Expo 78". 

The Committee has monitored the progress of the Lake Quannapowitt 
reclamation study done for the Department of Public Works by Carr Associates. 
We reviewed the report and met with the Department of Public Works making the 
following recommendations. 



42 TOWN OF WAKEFIELD 



1. The use of algicides should be continued especially, directed at the bluegreen 
algae. 

2. Walking of pets in the parks and along the fringes of the lake should be 
banned. 

3. Frequency of street cleaning should be increased within budgetary 
limitations. 

4. Establish a program of lake shore management, including the selective 
removal 

of deciduous trees and their replacement by evergreens. 

5. A diversion structure should be constructed to divert base flows from the 
Lord 

Wakefield Culvert between January 15 and April 15. This diversion should 

have 

the capability of by -passing peak flows should further studies indicate the 

com- 
plete reversal of Carr's findings. The diversion should also be studied to find 
what adverse impact, if any, is felt on flood stages downstream on the Saugus 
River during the HUD 100-year flood. 

6. A program of further sampling should be established at the major inlets and 
out- 
lets of the lake and diversion structure to measure flows and nutrient load. 
Tests should be scheduled periodically during major storms events, in 

particular 

during the first operating year of the diversion. 

7. Investigate the availability of State and Federal assistance. 

The Committee members would like to express their gratitude for the op- 
portunity to serve the Townspeople in carrying out our responsibility of 
protecting the natural resources of the Town.

Report of the Recreation Commission 

Over the past few years, the Wakefield Recreation Commission has taken a 
leadership role in the Community in expanding and improving recreational op- 
portunities for the citizens of the Town. In 1978 the Recreation Department 
provided Wakefield residents more quality leisure -time opportunities than ever 
before. As a matter of fact, Wakefield's Recreation Commission is considered to 
be one of the better municipal recreation departments in Massachusetts. 

In March of 1978 the Recreation Commission members voted as Chairman 
Mr. George E. Koulouris and as Vice Chairman, Mr. William J. Boodry, Jr. 
Roger G. Maloney was appointed as Director of Recreation and Mrs. Marjorie 
Henderson was appointed as Secretary. 



167th ANNUAL REPORT 43 



The office of the Recreation Department is located at the Americal Civic 
Center on Main Street and is open from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. on April 1 to 
accommodate the increasing number of tennis and other permits. A total of 
14,700 permits were issued from April 1, 1978 to October 31, 1978. 

With the openings of the playgrounds and beaches in June, the office hours 
are extended to 5:00 P.M. 

The summer program has a staff of some 30 young people of the town, the 
majority of whom are attending college. The playground supervisors attend a 
workshop on techniques and skills of a playground instructor. During the summer 
the playgrounds continued to show an increase in new activities. Field trips were 
sponsored by the Commission. Other mini -field trips were taken by the individual 
parks to various locations. 

The very popular mini clinics again proved to be very successful. These 
included football, baseball, girls softball, baton twirling, soccer, wrestling, 
cheerleading and track and field. 

The playgrounds also offered numerous Arts and Crafts programs. Two 
handicraft supervisors enabled each playground to have a specialized activity in 
Arts and Crafts twice a week. Many of the handicrafts were on display in the 
lobby of the Melrose-Wakefield Shawmut Bank for one week and the Lucius 
Beebe Library for one week at the end of the summer. 

The beaches were very popular this summer and attendance increased as the 
temperature rose. Identification tags were sold to residents for 50 cents and non- 
residents paid a fee of $2.00 for the season. Free swimming lessons were given 
during the nine week season. This year we added a Waterfront Director to the 
staff. The annual Long Distance Swim was held in August and a large group 
registered and most finished the swim. 

The free tennic clinic for youngsters from ages 8 through 16 was over sub- 
scribed again this year. 

At the end of the summer season the annual Town Wide Picnic was held on 
the Common for all the Town's youngsters. Following the picnic, presentation of 
the awards for the playground Arts and Crafts programs were awarded, and 
Little Miss Wakefield was crowned. The afternoon ended with a puppet show and 
other fun time activities. 

Events held during the summer at the various playgrounds were field trips, 
arts and crafts, track and field events, baseball, basketball, street hockey, soccer, 
checker tournaments, frisbee contests, bean bags, volley ball, softball, croquet 
and horse shoes . Free ice cream slips were given throughout the summer for each 
week to participants for excellence in performance for the week. 

Other activities sponsored by the Recreation Commission throughout the 
year are adult physical fitness classes, town tennis championships, evening 
Summer Basketball League, Concerts on the Common Bandstand, Adult Golf 
lessons, winter adult basketball league, Saturday basketball for the youngsters, 
mem's and women's indoor tennis lessons, Saturday afternoon movies, open gym 
classes at the field house, volleyball, ballroom dancing and elementary gym- 
nastics. 



44 TOWN OF WAKEFIELD 



During 1978 more work was done on finishing the Yeuell School project, new 
bleachers for Dolbeare, Nasella, new basketball backboards installed at Nasella, 
the Common received a climbing tower and new seesaws, and Col. Connolly 
beach also received new seesaws. New water fountains were installed at Sullivan 
Park and Veterans Field. Various fencing projects were completed throughout the 
parks. Another undertaking this year was the distribution of a survey relative to 
Recreational programs and the response was exceptional. 

The main problem to plague the Recreation Department continues to be 
vandalism with damage to water fountains and fencing. Vandals set fire to all our 
rafts and sandboxes at the Vinton Street storage station. All of the parks ex- 
perienced damage to the storage boxes and picnic tables. 

In line with offering recreation for all age groups, lighted facilities for ten 
tennis courts, four basketball courts, a softball area and an all purpose area at 
Walton Field are provided. The Recreation Commission works in close con- 
junction with many various sport groups and others in the town. In conjunction 
with working with these groups and our own programs through the coordination 
of the Public Works and School Department efforts, the Commission provides 
field maintenance and facility supervision . Most permitting of all town facilities is 
handled through the Recreation Department. 

The Director and Commission members reflect a sincere interest in providing 
the townspeople with the best Recreation service possible for what the Town can 
spend in this area.

46 TOWN OF WAKEFIELD 



Report of the Director of Public Works 

As required by Chapter 48 of the Acts of 1950, an act authorizing the Town of 
Wakefield to establish a Board of Public Works, I respectfully submit for your 
consideration a report of the work accomplished in 1978 and thoughts for the 
future. 

Work under a $1.4 million Federal EPA and State Grant for a new sewer 
force main from the Farm Street Station to the Melrose city line was substantially 
completed this year and the improvements to the Farm Street Station should be 
completed by late spring in 1979. As a result of this grant, it may be necessary for 
the Town to implement a sewer user charge to users of the sewer system. The 
EPA has not as yet made a decision in this regard but it does appear as though 
some classes of sewer users must pay their share of the costs through a user 
charge (tax exempt institutions, etc.). 

The fourth EDA contract for curb and sidewalk replacement was completed 
and the EDA grant for Energy Conservation was also completed. This energy 
grant saw renovations to heating systems in four buildings — The Americal Civic 
Center, Police Station, Central Fire Station, and the Lafayette Building, as well 
as installation of insulation and new windows in selected locations in these 
buildings. 

The new monthly method of refuse collection for bulky items was instituted 
and operated throughout the year and seems to be working well and is well 
received by the public. 

The study by Carr Associates on Lake Quannapowitt was completed during 
the year and several public meetings were held along with comments from the 
Conservation Committee. The report does not indicate any clear cut path to follow 
for restoring the Lake, but there is a possibility of State and /or Federal funding 
for such a restoration program and the Town has filed a preliminary application 
for these funds. 

A contract was advertised and awarded to introduce fluorides into the water 
supply from Crystal Lake as voted at the Annual Town Meeting. This will now 
insure that all the water supplied to residents of the Town will be equally 
fluoridated. 

The Town is again actively seeking, along with the Town of Stoneham, a 
second connection to the M.D.C. water system. To that end, Senator Brennan 
has filed a bill in this session of the legislature to accomplish this. If successful, 
this of course would solve the Town's long range water supply problems and go a 
long way toward stabilizing water pressures on the west side of Town. 

The Department's equipment preventive maintenance program has been 
operating successfully for over a year. This program is the key to extending the 
life of our equipment , but cannot completely eliminate a reasonable replacement 
program. In the coming year, it is imperative that an equipment replacement 
program be developed in order to prevent the necessity for large capital outlays in 
the future. 

With the ever pressing burden of taxes on the citizens, if it becomes 
necessary to make further budget reductions over those of the F.Y. '80 budget, it 



167th ANNUAL REPORT 47 



will be necessary to eliminate, or curtail departmental programs. In the coming 
year, then, it will be necessary to examine what can and cannot be done in that 
regard and still maintain a level of service to the community that the citizens 
demand. 

For details of the work accomplished this year, I refer you to the following 
reports of the Division Supervisors. 

Respectfully submitted, 

RICHARD C. BOUTIETTE 
Director of Public Works 



Report of the Board of Public Works 

To the Citizens of the Town of Wakefield: 

The Board of Public Works was pleased with the progress made in 1978 
toward its goals of supplying Departmental services to the citizens of the Town at 
the lowest possible cost. 

Bartholomew Barry, Sr. retired in March, after twelve years as a member of the 
Board of Public Works. He was succeeded by William J. Benedetto. The March 
organizational meeting chose Dennis P. Hogan, Jr. as Chairman, and Alfred S. 
Conf alone as Secretary for the year. 

The Board intends to focus its major attention in the year to come on the 
problems with Lake Quannapowitt; securing a second water connection to the 
M.D.C., and operating the Department efficiently and economically. 

We also wish to thank all employees and other Town officials for their 
cooperation in making this another successful year for the Board.

BUILDING DIVISION 

During 1978 the EDA Public Works Act Projects were completed. These 
projects included extensive revisions to the heating systems at the Americal Civic 
Center, Central Fire Station, Lafayette Building and the Police Station. It also 
consisted of replacing some old windows with new Thermopane windows and 
some new storm windows on these buildings along with some installation of in- 
sulation. These projects are part of an Energy Conservation Program which 
should show a reduction in fuel consumed by these buildings. The projects were 
completed by outside contractors as provided for by the Federal Regulations 
governing such grants. 

Also during 1978 the new emergency generator was installed in the new 
garage at North Avenue. The interior of the Greenwood Fire Station was painted. 
Many other maintenance and repair work was performed during the year. These 
assignments were completed with the utilization of Department of Public Works 
employees and the CETA work force assigned to the Buildings Division of the 
Department of Public Works. 

The Americal Civic Center showed an approximate increase of 26% in income 
during its second full year of operation. The total income for Fiscal 1978 was 
$15,853.12. The income received was as follows: Hall Rentals $6,965.00 and 
Office and Storage Rentals $8,888.12. The demand for use of the Civic Center by 
various Town Departments, Committees and Private Organizations is steadily 
growing. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all Public Works and CETA 
employees, all Division Heads, the Administration, and the office staff for their 
cooperation and assistance throughout the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROBERT L. HUBBARD, Buildings Manager

FORESTRY & PARK DIVISION 

It is my pleasure to inform you of the maintenance program performed by 
this Division during 1978. 

The first of the year, the Forestry section commenced its annual clearance of 
utility power lines within the general area of the North Ward of Wakefield. 
Approximately 494 trees were pruned during the months of January, February 
and March. 

New tree plantings were introduced in the Spring, replacing many trees 
which were removed in recent years. Two new locations of Longbow and Jennifer 
Roads were accomplished this year. A total of 218 shade trees were planted during 
the months of May and June. During the remainder of the year many requests 
were made by residents concerning various shade tree problems. An estimated 
total of 336 request orders were answered by the Division and all work performed. 

The continuing decline of healthy sugar maples along our public streets is 
still evident by the removal of 155 shade trees by contract bid and personnel from 
this Division. 

The Park section has a routine winter schedule of snow and ice work and the 
responsibility of maintenance of all picnic tables and storage boxes belonging to 
the Recreation Commission. The installation of new sod at Moulton Field was 
done this Spring. Continued regular grass mowing and ball diamond maintenance 
of all parks and playgrounds in Wakefield during the growing season was done as 
required, including much roadside grass and weed cutting along our main public 
ways. 

In conclusion, the planting of the old Town Hall parking lot was completed 
with larger shade trees, in addition to flowering shade trees in the sidewalk 
locations adjacent to the First East Savings Bank on West Water Street. All 
material cost for the latter was donated by the First East Savings Bank, and I 
wish to express sincere thanks to those who were responsible for making those 
funds available to purchase these flowering trees.

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

The ultimate goal of the School Committee has been to provide quality 
education at the lowest cost to the taxpayers of Wakefield. Educational goals 
have included the promoting of higher student achievement by offering stronger 
programs in reading, communication skills and mathematics; program offerings 
for gifted students; an expansion of offerings in occupational education; the 
acquisition of more federal support; and a constant evaluation of existing 
programs with the emphasis on quality. 

With the comprehensive and detailed report of the Committee of Forty, the 
School Committee moved to deal with the problem of declining student 
enrollments by voting to close the Lincoln School at the end of the school year 
1978—79. The Committee is deeply grateful to the Committee of Forty for 
providing a sound educational and philosophic base on which to build present and 
future school closing decisions. 

To deal with the many issues that have faced the School Committee this past 
year, subcommittees were formed. Each subcommittee actively met with staff 
and administration beyond the regular meetings in order to bring to the full 
School Committee the best information and recommendations for making 
decisions. Sincere gratitude is extended to the following members of the School 
Committee who contributed the many additional hours and effort to serve on 
subcommittees: NEGOTIATIONS — William F. Kenney, Janice Porit- 
zky; TESTIMONIALS - Richard Wood, Louis Racca; COMMITTEE OF 
FORTY - H. Steven Welford, Janice Poritzky; ATHLETICS - John B. En- 
carnacao, William F. Kenney, Richard Wood; FINANCE — Willian F. Kenney, 
John B. Encarnacao, Janice Poritzky; CURRICULUM and STAFF 
DEVELOPMENT — H. Steven Welford, Louis Racca, Janice Poritzky; 
RELEASE TIME - H. Steven Welford, William F. Kenney. 



167th ANNUAL REPORT 61 



The School Committee sincerely appreciates the many years of dedicated 
service and extends best wishes on the retirements of Maurice Dwyer, Guidance 
Director, Mary A. McAuliffe, Junior High School English and Latin teacher, and 
Rayna E. McCullough, Grade 5 elementary teacher. 

The School Committee notes with deep sadness the passing of Mrs. Maureen 
Rubbico, beloved Junior High School social studies teacher and Mr. John G. 
Keaney, custodian, At well School. 

I am sincerely grateful to each member of the Committee for the strong 
support and cooperation during a period of intense problem solving and decision 
making. 

Respectfully submitted, 

LOUIS R. SARDELLA 
Chairman 

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 
TO THE WAKEFIELD SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

The administration and staff have focused on implementing the educational 
goals adopted by the School Committee. The goal of quality and consistent 
educational programs at the ELEMENTARY LEVEL has been implemented by 
designating Holt Mathematics, Ginn Reading and Laidlaw Language Arts text- 
book systems as the educational programs that will be offered uniformly in grades 
kindergarten through grade six (6). All programs were adopted with the approval 
and recommendation of large samplings of administration and staff. The I. M.S. 
mathematics program is now used as a supplementary program for remedial and 
enrichment work. The administration will soon present the Committee with a 
recommendation to adopt a systemwide spelling program consistent with 
Wakefield's language arts program. A program of instruction for gifted 
elementary students will begin in the fall. 

The elementary schools continued to stress the importance of nutrition 
education. Two (2) after school workshops were conducted by the New England 
Dairy and Food Council for any teachers in grades kindergarten through six (6) 
who desired to participate in the program. These workshops were conducted at no 
cost to the town. In the future similar opportunities to participate in nutrition 
education workshops will be provided to interested teachers. 

At WAKEFIELD JUNIOR HIGH, an additional teaching cluster was 
formed at the seventh grade level. The students in each cluster have the same 
group of teachers instructing them. This allows for better communication among 
teachers, teacher to teacher and teachers to parents. Each month, all the seventh 
and eighth graders participate in a writing workshop. The entire school becomes 
involved in writing on the same topic suggested and motivated by the English 
Department. The writing is in addition to the regular classroom assignments. The 
Junior High literary magazine, Imagination, continued to win awards for seventh 
and eighth grade writing skills. 

The Wakefield Junior High School Orchestra, one of the largest in the state, 
was selected to offer an orchestral workshop with Professor William Pordon of the 
University at Lowell at the annual All State Convention on March 23, 1979. 



62 TOWN OF WAKEFIELD 



At WAKEFIELD HIGH, the goal of increased occupational offerings was 
implemented by expanding the distributive education opportunities and the 
addition of an electronics program. The distributive education program was paid 
for by a federal grant. Approximately $200,000 in federal grants has been received 
for education programs in Wakefield. The Symphony Orchestra returned from the 
State Band /Orchestra competition festival held in Fitchburg with the First Place 
Trophy. This outstanding musical organization, under the direction of Mr. 
Richard Laman, Director of Music for the Wakefield Public Schools, is now 
preparing to defend its title in 1979. Two (2) immensely talented and skilled 
Wakefield High singers, Scott Garrant and Rita Balzotti were selected to 
represent Massachusetts in an Eastern Division Conference to be held in Atlantic 
City, N.J., February 10-12, 1979. In addition, a total of 18 Wakefield High 
School musicians were selected to perform with the Northeastern District Chorus, 
Band and Orchestra at Waltham High School on January 20th, 1979. This 
represents the largest contingency of Wakefield participants within the last 
decade. 

The athletic program at Wakefield High School continued to grow with 
marked emphasis being demonstrated in the girls programs . In the previous five 
(5) years, additional girls activities have been developed as follows:

The remaining girls programs in gymnastics (35), tennis (30), and spring 
track (40), have remained constant. The estimated number of total participating 
girls is now over 300. 

A new and revised social studies curriculum was prepared to help students 
deal with all aspects of past history and current events. Also presented and 
adopted by the School Committee was a plan to increase the number of credits for 
graduation from ninety (90) to one hundred (100). 

The Guidance Department has instituted a career information service, the 
Guidance Information System, a computerized service which generates com- 
prehensive guidance data on careers and colleges. Students have access to the 
information through their regular classes. 

The Special Education Department continued to provide services to children 
who have special needs . The needs serviced by the department vary from those 
tutorial kinds of assistance to full residential students tuitioned to private schools 
and /or hospitals. The primary goal is to return children receiving special services 
to the mainstream of students within the regular classrooms. To that end it may 
be noted that the number of special needs students this past year has been 
reduced from 721 to 435. The majority of those students returned to the regular

SCHOOL PLANT MANAGEMENT 

During the past year one of the largest Capital expenditures was for the new 
boiler installed at the Warren School. Throughout the school system all of the 
boilers and heating equipment have been inspected and approved by the town 
insurance company. The school custodians cleaned the boilers in their buildings 
and placed new filters in the unit ventilators. The outdated and inefficient 
thermostatic heating controls and valves in the classrooms at the Greenwood 
School have been replaced with new modern energy saving equipment. 

The annual summer painting program was confined to the interior of the 
Franklin School where many new color selections were used in the classrooms. 
This work was performed by a private contractor, selected after public bidding. 
School maintenance employees carried out many other painting projects 
throughout the system. Utilizing summer help, the visitors bleachers were 
repainted at Landrigan Field and the home side bleachers were treated with wood 
preservative. 

At the Junior High School a portion of the exterior brick walls were repointed 
by a masonry contractor and school maintenance employees applied silicone 
waterproofing to the brick surfaces. 

To provide a safer playing area for the students at the Walton School, the 
playground in the rear of the building has been regraded, loomed and seeded. A 
mixture of stonedust and sand has been used to make a baseball diamond at this 
playground.

Another improvement in the school buildings was the installation of new 
toilets and metal compartments in the boys' toilet at the Greenwood School. 

In compliance with a recommendation of the Fire Department and the 
Building Inspector, a modern fire detection system has been installed at the West 
Ward School. In addition to early warning devices, new horns, lights and a 
master control panel have been placed at the school.

REPORT OF THE LIBRARY TRUSTEES 

A handbook for library trustees compiled by the Massachusetts Library 
Trustees' Association defines the role of the trustees as "the steward of the 
community's library". It urges all trustees to develop skills in policy-making, 
budgeting, and representing community needs to the library director and staff. 

We have used this handbook in an effort to fulfill our obligations as trustees 
effectively and competently. 

The trustees revised the policies pertaining to donations, use of the 
Genealogical Collection, leave of absence for staff members, and the use of the 
Trustees' Room during the year. All revisions were made after a careful study of 
the existing policies showed the need for change. 

The policy for the use of the display cases was rewritten and a new Con- 
tinuing Education policy was adopted. 

Mr. Fragasso, Assistant Director, has done the research necessary to keep 
policies up-to-date. He is assembling a policies book that will aid the trustees in 
their efforts to keep present policies timely and to write new policies as the need 
arises. 

One of the most important policies adopted this year was to open the library 
on Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. 

The decision was made to open Sundays after the trustees received numerous 
requests for Sunday hours from library patrons. 

The trustees discussed the advantages of Sunday opening with trustees of 
other communities in the state. 

We requested and received from the director a new organizational chart of the 
library staff designating duties and areas of responsibility for each staff member. 

It is now an established policy to advertise all non -professional job openings 
in the Wakefield Item. 

Ms. Sharon Gilley, Assistant Director, was elected director of the library at 
the April board meeting. 

At the March meeting Mrs. Yolanda Ballou and Mrs. Elsie Donovan were 
welcomed as new members of the board. 

Officers elected were: Chairman, John Landers; Vice -Chairman, Ethel 
Koulouris; and Secretary, Ruth Finlay. 

The Friends of the Library arranged many outstanding programs for the 
library. The week of special programs in observance of National Library Week 
offered something of interest to all. 

A reception at the Hartshome House for the staff, trustees, and Friends 
provided an opportunity to meet and socialize. 

An appropriate touch to the holiday season was the program of bell-ringers 
sponsored by the Friends. 

The Annual Book Sale was again successful. 



76 TOWN OF WAKEFIELD 



The members of this organization are truly "friends" of the library patrons, 
staff, and trustees. We are indebted to them for their efforts to aid the library. 

Five members of the board attended an all -day conference of the 
Massachusetts Library Association in Sturbridge. The workshop proved of value 
to us in coping with some of the problems facing the public libraries today . 

We thank the library administrators, staff, and patrons for making the 
Lucius Beebe Memorial Library a vital part of the community rather than a mere 
"storehouse for books". 

The new programs and services offered by the library have been well-received 
by the community. 

RUTH FINLAY, Secretary 
Board of Library Trustees 

1978 ANNUAL REPORT LIBRARY DEPARTMENT 

Perhaps the single biggest blessing of the year has been the Friends of the 
Library. The perseverance of a few has earned the library a healthy group of 
supporters. To kick off their season, the Friends sponsored a by -invitation -only 
reception at the Hartshorne House for their membership, library staff, and 
Trustees. During the Christmas season, seventy townspeople enjoyed the 
chiming music of the Codman English Bell Ringers. The Annual Book Sale has 
become a spring tradition and is the Friends' most successful fundraiser. 

Under the capable leadership of the president, Brenda Applin, the Friends' 
Executive Board continues to plan programs and provide services for the library. 
Their most recent gift, a collection of fanciful wall hangings, warms and brightens 
the Youth Room. 

Readers and Information Services. Geared primarily to adults and older 
students, this newly created department emphasizes top-knotch reference service. 
Because patrons often find the library confusing, more staff time has been 
scheduled for assisting the public. The staff notes with pleasure that their skills in 
information retrieval are increasingly in demand, by telephone and in person. 

Because of the attendance of Reference Librarian Maureen Nevin at a 
workshop on legal materials, the library became eligible for grant money to 
augment its collection of law books. The legal and business resources in the 
reference collection have improved to the point that we can satisfy most of the 
demands made on them. 

After capturing first prize in the Massachusetts Library Association annual 
public relations contest, the slide -tape produced by Catherine vanSonnenberg, 
Philip Fragasso, and Mae Keenan provided an instructive program for com- 
munity groups. Clubs and church groups who have asked for the slide show in 
conjunction with a book talk indicate that they have felt entertained as well as 
informed about the resources of this institution. 

The library took advantage of the free services of "Arts Alive!", a federally 
funded group of artists and musicians who produced cultural programs for all 
ages at the Main Library and Branches throughout the year. Peter Calderaro's 
films of old Wakefield drew crowds , and the speedreading courses were once again 
popular. 



167th ANNUAL REPORT 77 



For the continued delivery of library services to shut-ins, we are indebted to 
Bea Todd, Ella Lombara, Helen Landrigan, and Jan Shaw. 

Young Adult Services. Working in conjunction with other Town agencies, 
the Young Adults' Librarian provided specialized library service to youths junior 
high school age and up. A newsletter published throughout the year kept these 
youth -oriented groups aware of each other's activities. 

The Young Adult collection includes current popular magazines and records. 
Disco classes, pot luck suppers, crafts, and films kept youths coming back to the 
library for their more serious needs as well. The Youth Club produces their own 
short newsletter each month. 

An odd -jobs file is available to homeowners in need of helping hands, as is a 
babysitter's file for use by parents. The latter is kept up to date through periodic 
babysitting clinics, in which the expertise of the Wakefield Fire Department and 
of Cheryl Scott, Sandy Lodico, and Caroline Turner, as nurse and mothers, was 
shared with participants. 

As schools figure prominently into the lives of young people, the Youth 
Department provided a great deal of help with school projects. Through the 
library, older students tutored younger ones in a variety of subjects. 

For the use of school video equipment for a summer program, the Young 
Adults Department is grateful to Bob Burke of the Junior High School faculty 
and to Dr. Stephen Maio. 

Children's Services. The Children's Librarian observed an increase in the 
number of parents and teachers requesting specialized literature on hospital 
stays, birth of a sibling, death, moving, and similar events or emotions of 
significance in a child's life. An important counterpart to the service rendered 
directly to children is this cooperative effort on the part of the adult community 
and the library to introduce children to the benefits of reading. 

Preschool storyhours ran from October through April. School visits, planned 
to correlate with classroom curricula, were the occasion for storytelling, book 
talks, and instruction in library use. 

The summer reading program attracted a large following and has proved a 
successful way to keep children involved with reading during summer vacation. 
Help from the Friends of the Library enabled the Department to continue this 
program. Jean Gilbert and Mary Keane donated many hours of their time 
listening to reports of books by the children. 

Susan Chu taught origmai to large groups of eager youngsters in the spring 
vacation period. Puppetry, drama, creative movement, and crafts were all part of 
the year's activities. 

Branch Libraries. The Branches brought materials and service to people who 
have difficulty getting to the Main Library. Both Branches maintain current 
collections of bestsellers and magazines selected for their communities. Through a 
sharing of skills and resources, the Branches offer programs similar to those of 
the Main Library. 

While Greenwood adults always support the book discussion group, it has 
been the activities for children that have drawn the greatest numbers. The 



78 TOWN OF WAKEFIELD 



summer reading and craft program reached over 150 children. A capacity turnout 
has greeted children's and young adults' activities all year long. 

Greenwood Branch enjoys a close relationship with the two area grammar 
schools. Carol Kiley, the Branch Librarian, has been happy to work with them 
and to meet with community groups to present book reviews and information 
about the library. 

At the Montrose Branch, Bea Wheeler ran successful story hours and 
summer reading programs for the children, but it is really the adults that support 
this Branch. During the past year, the Montrose Neighbor Group enjoyed crafts, 
book talks, guest speakers, and a social hour. Lacking regular public tran- 
sportation to the Main Library, the elder citizens of Montrose patronize their 
community Branch. 

Adult Literacy Workshop continues to operate under the capable leadership 
of Joan Keech. Thanks to a fine staff of volunteers, an average of twenty -five 
students receive instruction in English as a Second Language or Basic Reading 
Skills. 

This past year the Board of Library Commissioners established standards for 
beginning ALW programs in other libraries. Having run a successful program for 
years, Beebe Library was called on for input.

The net profit of the department of $373,774.87 for the twelve month period. 

The Balance in our Operating Fund was $68,705.33. 

The sum of $300,000.00 was paid to the Town to be used in computing the 
tax rate for Fiscal 1978. The total amount paid to the Town is $4,690,846.00. 

The Manager's report including financial statement for the year is included in

Respectfully submitted, 
EDWARD D. CONWAY, Chairman 
JOSEPH R. SARDELLA, Secretary 
FRANK RAPUANO 



MUNICIPAL LIGHT DEPARTMENT 

To the Board of Light Commissioners: 

The 1978 fiscal year was a very productive one for the department. We have 
continued to update our circuits by increasing the primary voltage in various 
sections of the Town. This will increase the capacity of the circuits and should 
allow our customers trouble free service for years to come. 

Our gas system has shown continual growth over the years. This coming 
year we plan to install a fourth take point from Boston Gas which should give us 
an adequate supply of gas for the next few years . 

We received our new mini-computer in February, 1978 and are now using it 
to print our bills. We hope to be on our computer completely by early 1979. The 
computer will be available for many Town functions in addition to the Light 
billing.

186 TOWN OF WAKEFIELD 



Sixty-Fourth Annual Report of the 
Town Accountant 

FOR THE FISCAL PERIOD ENDING JUNE 30, 1978 

The total cash expenditure processed by the Town Accountant's Office 
amounted to $42,499,162.44. 

The total cash receipts amount to $43,577,316.50 which indicates the 
necessity for serious attention and consideration in this area of the Town's 
financial program. 

The operational and indebtedness cost of town services can be examined by 
the simple comparison with other immediately surrounding communities. 

This method of comparison brings the tax rate and valuation variables 
together in the formation of a comparative per -capita cost factor.

The growth of the town in population and valuation is directly related to 
increased operational cost. The creation of non-existent facilities in areas of the 
town that have heretofore been undeveloped and apart from the service arterials 
have required increased capital expenditures in an era of high construction costs. 

The records of the Treasurer have been examined and found to be in 
agreement with the accountant's balances. 

The operating cash balance as of June 30, 1978 is as follows: 

Revenue Cash $ 142,220.01
